We were originally supposed to do a trip to Europe but couldn’t find the 3-4 weeks we wanted to travel there so we chose to do a quick Hawaii trip instead (Europe is still on the list for May/June next year!). We explored 3 islands in the 13 days we were there (Kauai (5 days), Maui (2 days) and Oahu (6 days)).
This year’s adventure was to Japan. David and I were lucky enough to go with my two best friends and their husbands and enjoy everything that Japan has to offer on our 10 days there. Our friends only went for 5-7 days so we went first and saw Kyoto & Osaka then travelled back to meet them in Tokyo. We recommend seeing both Tokyo and Kyoto/Oskaka if time permits (minimum 8 days to see both we would say).
I have a rule that I live by: travel over seas at least once a year and this year, Bali was my destination. I have been to Bali a number of times before, but I was younger and I never took the time to travel the island, see the sights and take in the culture. This time I did the entire island, north, south, east and west.
You may or may not be aware that I’m a bit of a travel bug. Most recently I took my partner to Melbourne for his birthday. We were only there for 4 days and made it our mission to pack as much of Melbourne as possible into that limited time. So without further ado, here is my Melbourne guide featuring my tips for the best Melbourne food and Melbourne’s must see places/ things to do.
If you’re in South-East Queensland, then Noosa should be on the top of your list of places to visit. Apart from being some of the more expensive real estate in Australia per square meter, it also has stunning natural features to view, friendly locals, delicious food and plenty of outdoor activities.
My partner and I recently spent an amazing week in Fiji so I wanted to let you guys know our tips and recommendations for this beautiful country. The post will be separated into 3 parts – what we did, our tips for Fiji and then the 3 day trips we went on which and will also be linked into the lifestyle and fitness sections of my blog.
